Navy's Blue Angels to fly over downtown Nashville

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE (AP) - The U.S. Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron, better known as the Blue Angels, are scheduled to fly their jet fighters over downtown Nashville for a team photo shoot.

The Blue Angels plan to fly their six F/A-18 Hornets in delta formation over the northwestern part of the city on Thursday morning. A seventh jet will fly alongside the formation to photograph the maneuver.

The jets plan to fly at about 300 knots and at an altitude of between 500 and 1,500 feet.

The Blue Angels are scheduled to appear at the Great Tennessee Air Show in Smyrna over the weekend.
